My research centers on consumer behavior, especially in the areas of psychological ownership, emotions, and decision-making. Specific areas of interest include the following: exploring how and when consumers' feelings of ownership lead to territorial responses; understanding how consumers come to feel a sense of ownership of intangible digital technologies; narcissism in consumer behavior; and nonconscious processing and investor behavior. My work has appeared in top journals such as Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Advertising Research, Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice, Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics, Journal of Brand Management, Journal of Marketing Theory and Practice, and Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services.
